By now we’ve all heard about rainbow food so much that we’re sick of it. Seriously, rainbow grilled cheese? Too far. So if you’re over this unnecessary color madness but still want food that excites your eyes as well as your taste buds, look no further than the new, refreshing trend: galaxy foods. These foods are as shimmery and enchanting as the constellations, plus the options are endless.

Now that I’ve got you mesmerized by these magical creations I’m gonna blow your mind a bit more: they’re actually super easy to make yourself. So next time you’re craving a Milky Way bar, instead whip up one of these treats and snack on the whole solar system. Just don’t start abusing grilled cheese and pasta by subjecting them to galaxy glitter.

Read on if you want some celestial donuts of your own.

  • Step 2

    Make frosting by mixing the powdered sugar and butter. Divide the glaze into separate bowls and use food coloring to dye it whatever colors you want in your galaxy.

    #SpoonTip: We’d recommend using an electric mixer to beat the butter until it smooths out.

    Spoon dollops of frosting onto a plate and swirl them with a toothpick.

  • Step 4

    Press the face of your donut into the frosting and rub it around a bit to get the whole thing covered. You may need to dip it a few times since often there are still a lot of unfrosted gaps after the first dip.

  • Step 5

    Keep rubbing it around until it’s fully covered or smooth any problem areas out with a butter knife.
